Good article, TN Nana.

I served on a carrier in the early ‘60s. Never was aware of rapes going on (and no women back then on ships). However, there were multiple incidents on my ship and some of the supporting task force ships of crewmen disappearing overnight during our deployment for many months in the Mediterranean and the transitioning to and from there.

Some disappearances may have been due to racial problems and others may have been due to suicides or sexual situations like those mentioned in the article.

SHUT UP! President Bush was a REAL friend of the military.

The last true friend of the military POTUS and America First POTUS left office in January 1989. He rebuilt what had been a very neglected military. He helped put some pride back in wearing the uniform. Under his tenure our military grew to a readiness strength unseen since WW2 while enjoying peace because we had the worlds respect once again. Since then it's been hollow gestures and Global Politics comes first.

I did not think after Carter our military would under go such a tearing down again. This did not happen overnight and no not even the GOP takeover of both houses stopped it. It began in 1990 thereabouts and has not slowed down. Later Clinton inflicted damage even with {the blessings of} a GOP two house majority. The Bush Family Socially is as Liberal as the Clinton and Kennedy Family. GW Bush had a chance to rebuilt our military as did the two house majority and blew it. His DEMLITE agenda took front burner.

That said this current assault by the civilian side of the Pentagon by this administration and congress against the honor and traditions of the Armed Forces of The United States is the lowest of lows. The attack on morale and the needed moral standards for maintaining the armed forces allowing it to function has been Upped to a no holds barred attack.

WTH ARE OUR GOP LEADERS? Congress regulates the military. Scared of the fact that their misconduct {Fagotry} or fisical scandals will be outed? Are we living ubnder a blackmailed government? This latest outrage is just not a slap in the face and dishonoring the blood spilled in our nations history to keep this nation free, this is two parties shaking their fist at GOD and saying He is irrelevant and even wrong.

This guy claims that there are more men raped than women..

However from the numbers that are supplied there are 1% of men raped while there are 5% of women...

He discounts the female victims...its all about him because hes a man and he got raped...

I’ve heard this guy speak a year ago and thats the impression I got...

“Its the era of the male victims now...

Women are no longer being raped

(or its OK if they are raped, thats normal)...”

I can see this backfiring on the homosexuals...

Its out there now that men in our military are raped by Obama’s homosexuals...

There is brand new study that just came out on military assaults in the military. I guarantee you that just as many are faggots sexually assaulting straight men as there are men assaulting women. The faggot loving media will not talk about this story, and damn sure will not tell you the truth about homosexual rape in the ranks. Obama has destroyed the morale and mission effectiveness of the US Armed Forces. The next republican president should reinstate the ban against queers on active duty and get rid of these mentally deranged perverts. It all starts from the top and when the man sitting in the White House could care less about the US military, but care everything about his perverted sodomite donors, this is what happens. This sorry SOB will destroy the US military for years to come unless a conservative president takes action to rid the military of these sick bastards. All presidents starting with George Washington knew what would happen if you allowed sodomites in the ranks. It is the absolute worse thing that ever happened the US military. The sick bastards need to be on a mental ward or in jail, not serving in the US Armed Forces, where they can prey on young men and women that are not into their demented sexual lifestyle. Pray for this nation and pray alot. I am ashamed of what it has become. God will not be mocked.

“Worse yet, I can’t see a future Republican administration daring to reverse this ridiculous decision.”

I don’t see why it can’t be reversed. It’s up to us to vote the right people into office to reverse a slew of bad laws. We have an outstanding farm team in our state legislatures who are voting to nullify obamacare, gun laws and immigration. Get those people into Congress and a whole bunch of bad laws can be rescinded.

I am aware of the study, and in fact, such assaults are MORE prevalent than assaults on women.

As usual, the cry is “rape is not about sex! It’s about power!”

No. Using the IRS to destroy political opponents is about power. Raping someone is about sex, just as much as robbing someone is about financial gain.

thanks for the ping.

Yet again we see how this radical admin has destroyed the military.

I remember a few weeks ago arguing with a serving officer who I might add, told me how he was getting promotion in his national guard that PC and the military has not changed, how cross dressers are not allowed. I forget his name but it summed up to me how some in the military of part time serving think this is alright and it’s not a problem.

I know damn well that my boys will not follow the family tradition and serve and it’s because of crap like this or , having marines hold umbrellas for his lordship.

one of the first things a republican admin should do is overturn all of this nut case perverted crap.

Sexual assaults, rapes on men has jumped and it’s no coincidence that homosexuals can prance around on camp now , but then we now have to put up with men dressing like women.

totally agree, sexual assaults, rapes and officers being promoted based on either sex, race or religion is out of control.

The next President should cite these issues, cite the results form the reports and state that homosexuals will now not serve in the military, no more cross dressing and also make the entrance exam fitness and mental harder because of right now to get in the marines is only two pull ups which is a joke, running in sneakers is a joke.

I;m seeing so many fairy men today in the military, too many fat women who can’t even tie their own shoes or iron their uniform

Make the military as it used to be, fighting men and women who love the country, no more freebies for doing the minimum service so we have layabouts joining and then leaving after 4 yeas and then getting a life time benefits , and for what?
Because he was a bedding storeman

I go over to McChord AFB occasionally and can’t believe what I see. Fat dykes walking around in their uniform with their “partner”, or hell “wife” now. Men with guts so big they can’t see their shoes. A young kid carried my groceries out of the commissary the other day and I told him that back in my day if you were overweight you were told to get the lard off or you were getting discharged. Kid goes on to tell me how much harder basic is now than back when I was in and how the “joint force” has them all ready to fight at a moments notice. I asked him was that the reason the uniform of the day is baggy ass desert cammies with brown work boots? I told him how stupid it looked for everyone to look like they worked in Red Horse. Of course he didn’t know what Red Horse was. I also told him there was a time when the Air Force didn’t look like the Army, and it was BS that you can’t tell the services apart. I asked him did anyone ever wear blues anymore. He looked at me like I was crazy. Glad that I served when I did. There is no way I could be in today’s feminized, sodomized, “we all look like soldiers”, Air Force.

My old man was Airborne, his brothers were Pacific Marines.

They’d be suited up and marching already and prepping quite a few individuals for a modern day Nuremberg.

Yes this is bizarre, yes this is sick and perverse. It is what the morally devoid community organized left is all about. HOWEVER, the supposed victory for the perverted is NOTHING but hype. The weirdo that had a sex change is retired and the weirdos that are promoting this supposed ‘progress’ are dreaming and pushing propaganda.

My father was commo all the way through. In WWII he’d go from a submarine onto the beaches of Japanese-held islands to place the stakes for the commo wire for Marine and Navy units while the frogmen sampled beach sand and scouted out enemy fortifications. In Korea and early Vietnam he was a commo chief in charge of telephone, radio and other people.

We were produced by an amazing generation of people, friend...

What society is producing today would make them puke.

My old man made the March 45 jump into Germany. It was not pretty. Those Germans fought like lunatics to protect the Fatherland.

He’d been riddled with shell fragments in the Ardennes, and had a bullet graze wound as well, but he still made the jump.

Hard dudes... Americans, through and through.

All the uniform combinations suck. In the desert they stick out like a sore thumb. The dumb ass uniform board have changed the uniforms numerous times in the past few years and none work in the environment they were designed for.

Try outrunning and outfighting the enemy with an extra 20+ on your gut. There’s a reason our military used to stay in shape and stay on guard. They remembered the past to ready themselves for the possible future.

We had here in Jacksonville a couple of years back a few Navy and Cost guard ships and boy was many of their crew awful

Some had no idea what a prism compass was, some stood in hands in pockets and the guys standing at the entrance of the ships, the gang plank stood with hands in pockets, uniform not pressed, boots had dirt on them.

This was a public event and they acted and dressed like that.
I see today many overweight, many can’t shoot and it;s a disgrace, it seems only most in the combat units today are switched on.

Course stating this can be construed as you hate the military.

I;m only happy that I got to serve when men were men and they served because they loved their country and not for the freebies and get promotion based on their ass kissing, no pun intended though the phrase seems very adequate today in bozo the clown military.

Only Cruz and maybe Sarah has the guts and balls to overturn this nonsense , the rest of the cowards and pansies in the party including talk radio will do and say nothing about the amount of rapes on men shooting up
